Hello i am trying to find any part of my husbands roots. I have recently found an obit that told me his grand mothers last name and the name of her first husband. Lillian (Kocian) married Edward Chalupa and their second Vern S. Chalupa and possibly their first son Elmer Chalupa were born in Hays Springs, Neb.The obit was for Vern S. Chalupa says he was born Oct.26, 1913 . His older brother born who was born Feb. 20 1912 according to the Washington State death index I have not obtained an obit for him yet.I would like to see if can find this family in any census census, and maybe locate birth records for both of the sons. Other children born to this marriage were Melvin F, Helen and Edgar. I know that by 1930 she had remarried an Edgar and had two children Dolores and Kenneth. I only know this because Dolores is my husbands mother, and he remembers a couple of his Chalupa uncles.
